Open house for ARDC anniversary

July 2016 marks the 10th anniversary of the Sheboygan County Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC).

The public is invited to attend the Open House on Thursday, Aug. 4, from 3 to 6 p.m. which will include light refreshments along with entertainment from the Accordion Club.

The ADRC is located at 650 Forest Ave. in Sheboygan Falls. This central location means that no county resident has to travel too far for a scheduled appointment or even to drop in unannounced to take advantage of the free services and resources.

Of course the contact with the knowledgeable and experienced ADRC staff is not limited to an office visit; the ADRC staff more frequently meets with customers in their own homes or provides information and assistance over the phone or via e-mail.

The ADRC of Sheboygan County provides free, unbiased, accurate information and assistance to anyone who is a senior citizen, an adult with a disability, or their loved ones and caregivers. It doesn’t matter if you are independently wealthy or have little in the way of financial resources: everyone receives the same high level of service and assistance. If our staff doesn’t speak your language we will use interpreters or technology to make sure we can communicate and help you with your concerns.

Core services at the ADRC include two separate benefit counselors (one for adults with disabilities and one for senior citizens), information and assistance (call, email or drop in to see us Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 pm), caregiver supports, options counseling, assessment for long term care funding, resources and funding for people with Alzheimer’s and other dementias, and transition services for young adults with disabilities turning 18 or leaving school.

Marie Seger, supervisor of the ADRC, stated “Successes the ADRC experienced in the last 10 years include remodeling our building to make it more welcoming to our consumers, working with Family Care to eliminate wait lists so services are obtained as soon as needed, and partnering with Aging to provide well rounded services.”

Seger also stated that the goal of the ADRC is to assist people by supporting them in making choices that will keep them in the safest and least restrictive living environment of their choice. “We may provide information on how to utilize their finances by receiving services in their home which will extend their savings due to not having to pay the high cost of nursing home or assisted living care. We also assist those who are eligible, to apply for public benefit programs such as Medicare, Social Security, or Medicaid.”

If you are interested in services contact the ADRC at 920-467-4100, email us at ADRC@Sheboygancounty.com, visit our Facebook page or even better yet, stop out during our Open House on Aug. 4.
